"The Lost Island" PCs for Fantasy AGE

As a sequel to my previous column converting the heroes of Death in Freeport to Fantasy AGE, I've decided to do the same with the party appearing in True20 Freeport: The Lost Island.

Because these characters are likely to level during the course of the adventure, I've also included notes about the most thematically appropriate specializations to choose at 4th level.

Spiradon the Wanderer

Spiradon is a priest of the God of Roads, but came to that vocation late in life. He therefore has the Wanderer background (Outcast) instead of Initiate.

At 4th level, Spiradon may choose the Elementalist specialization (favoring either air or fire).

"Mad Pete" Willowbrook

"Mad Pete" has the Criminal background (Outcast). He is a skilled knife thrower, only changing to his crossbow when he runs out of spare blades, or needs to attack an opponents beyond throwing range.

At 4th level, Pete may choose the Assassin or Sharpshooter specialization.

Molly Quickblade

In True20, Molly Quickblade was an adept/warrior, combining some some minor combat powers with two-weapon fighting. This makes her difficult to convert to a single Fantasy AGE class, because she must lose either the magic or the weapon skills. I have provided two versions of the character below, one as a mage, one a warrior. Both have the Pirate background (Outcast).

As a mage, Molly is on the path to becoming a Sword Mage at 4th level. She will not be considered trained with any sword until that level, but the player may opt to replace her club with a short sword at 3rd level (taking the usual penalties for being untrained).

As a warrior, Molly is a skilled swordswoman. She may choose Mage Hunter at 4th level, or take a degree in a regular talent instead (perhaps mastering her Dual Weapon Style).
